Who is looking and who is being looked at, who is telling women's stories in Africa and what governs the mechanics of making those films on the continent? The disciplines of gender studies, postcolonial theory, and film theory provide the famework for the book's essays. Contributors ... provide valuable context, analysis and insights into, among other things, the politics of representation, the role of film festivals and the collective and individual experiences of trauma and marginality which contribute to the layered and complex filmic responses of Africa's film practitioners.--Edited information from back cover."@en ;
